Optically Clear Adhesive Market | IndustryARC
Rapidly Rising Need For Optically Clear Adhesive In The Automotive Industry For Screens, Rear-view Mirrors, And Other Applications Has Driven The Growth Of The Optically Clear Adhesive Market

Optically Clear Adhesive Market size is forecast to reach US$2.3 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 5.7% during 2022-2027. Globally, the optically clear adhesive finds usage in bonding of touch panels and display devices to bind the plastic, cover lens, and other optical materials to each other and to the main sensor unit, which is driving its market growth. Optically clear adhesives exhibit characteristics such as low loss fraction and high transmittance, which make them appropriate for utilization in touchscreens and displays of handheld devices. These adhesives can bond different types of surfaces such as polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), indium tin oxide (ITOs), polycarbonate, and glass. The application of optically clear adhesives in various end use industries such as electrical & electronics, aerospace, automotive, and others, is estimated to drive the market growth.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 impacted the automotive, energy, aerospace & defense industries over 2020. The manufacturing process of various products in these end use industries declined due to the lockdown norms. Economies of the industries got impacted and resulted in stagnation of activities across the end use industries that use optically clear adhesive. For instance, according to the European Parliament, in 2020 European demand for aerospace production declined in overall by 43%. However, for 2021 European traffic was estimated to recover to 51% of the 2019 levels. Thus, once the aerospace sector’s activities get back on track and start functioning with total capacity, the market for optically clear adhesive is estimated to incline in the upcoming years.

Optically Clear Adhesive Market Segment Analysis – By Product Type

The liquid optically clear adhesives (LOCA) held the largest share in the optically clear adhesive market in 2021. Liquid optically clear adhesives are utilized as bonding adhesives for a number of touch panel, display screens, and other lens bonding applications. The re-positioning characteristics of LOCAs is gaining popularity, since optically clear acrylic adhesives, optically clear epoxy adhesives, and optically clear resin do not exhibit this property. LOCAs possess better gap filling characteristics as compared to other product types. Moreover, the assembly process for LOCAs can be fully automated; while that for other product types can only be semi-automated. Thus, the growing demand for liquid optically clear adhesives (LOCA),  due to its alluring characteristics will drive the demand for optically clear adhesive market over the forecast period.
